Footlight Players performed the opera in 2012 at the Dock Street (you guys reviewed it), so saying it hasn't been performed in town in a generation is not accurate.
Well, I for one get a kick out of watching the show. I love this column. I got two friends to watch the show and they are hooked. So what? Nothing to be ashamed of. We all find it addicting. And trust me, we all hv pretty high IQ's. I watch PBS, I grew up in NYC my whole life and a recent transplant. I'm well read. Cultured. Bottom line, just because one likes the show, does not mean one is a dummy. I am enjoying the dynamic that the boys have. I too am enjoying Shep this season. As I have mentioned before, he is a smart guy. I can tell by his vocabulary and the way he puts complete sentences together:) Whitney comes out with some good one liners too. But he gets that from Patricia. Let's face it, Whitney had an excellent education. He maybe a snob, but I feel he would be interesting to talk with. For me anyway. He actually did a very good documentary called ULTRASUEDE : IN SEARCH OF HALSTON. I had caught it on SHO, before Southern Charm even started. I actually thought it was pretty good. I had no idea who this guy was when I watched it. But I thought he had done a good job and got the essence of the 70's and 80's. He got an interview with Liza Minelli and she started him on his quest. He used great disco music. Watching this show, I found out that Patricia has a huge Halston collection..it got me inspired to look for a Halston ultrasuede wrap dress on EBAY. No such luck yet. But I am determined..haha. So I give Whitney some points for doing that film.
Once again I agree with Stacey. Whitney has to get over it. Shep was a great host and planned the weekend so well. And he has a great attitude. I loved when he was on the phone with Whitney, convincing him to allow Craig to come to LA. I found it very funny. What I like about guys, is they are forgiving. Not like us dames, who are the worst when it comes to arguing. My goodness. I am more like the guys....but I have experienced disagreements with some women thru the years that were the worst...they make mountains out of molehills. Can't wait till next week....
You make me snort laugh!
And for Whitney to imply in any which way that having children out of wedlock makes you such a horrible person is absolutely repulsive. A lot of people don't do that by choice and I don't want to say whose fault it is in this situation but I really feel like he's putting a lot of the blame on Catherine and he is harboring a grudge. Craig is absolutely right
I think Craig knows exactly what he's talking about and we all saw the clip where his snobby ass mother was scooping up clothes out of the room telling the help to take it to the laundry room and he said those are Catherines clothes a one night stand does not leave a whole bunch of clothes at his house in his room. So there's more to the story than what's being told maybe he's not still in love with her but that means he's still hurt by what happened and I think that stuff opinion about everything is absolutely ridiculous and she's getting on my last nerve
I watch the show for the sole reason of reading these recaps. They are everything.
As a newbie to the series too, I gotta admit I am finding myself really starting to like Shep. He has really got a mature attitude underneath it all (he hides it well!) He planned the whole weekend in the mountains perfectly with a well thought out plan from accomodations to the menu and transportation. Really an excellent host and he knows there is a time and a place to speak your mind and times to just remain silent. Above and beyond he is magnanimous to forgive and forget everyone from Kathryn to Craig. I also do not blame Craig for telling Whitney to knock off the obnoxious commentary about Kathryn in order to soothe his bruised ego. No one stays so vehemently opposed to someone without a reason and his whining and profane objections to Kathryns' behavior is begining to sound like a broken record. Camerans' new pet project is helping Whitney to protect his bruised ego at all costs. Ridiculous! Earth to Whitney, best advice, man up to the truth and get over it!
I look forward to your column each Tuesday. I have to admit I watch the show at my convenience. I cannot help myself. I do not ordinarily watch "reality" except those that involve fishing. You do a wonderful job.
Amazing. My friend did run actually into Patricia doing a mundane errand in Charleston - grocery shopping. Well, actually she was walking around Whole Foods with her butler Michael who was dressed in an apron actually putting all the food in the cart for her, if that even counts as mudane...
"I Thank God for your very existence, I swear"
"Let’s talk about fear."
I LOVE your writing; period, end of story. I get your humor completely. I Thank God for your very existence, I swear, because you make me laugh so hard I cry (not an easy task cause I have a weird sense of humor). You remind me of Lewis Grizzard, God Rest His Soul. I live here now, transported from NY (please don't judge me; I grew up in the Deep South, I just fell in love with a Yankee. At least I finally wrangled him back to my roots). Confession: While still in NY I tried to watch the 1st season of Southern Charm (only because I knew we were moving here; curiosity killed the cat, they say). I didn't make it through one episode. Fast Forward: I read this paper religiously and when I read your first recap I knew I HAD to give it another try (although I would never admit that to anyone). But here's the difference - I now read your recap first, then I watch the episode. I do love the local scenery but the "drama" is too funny to miss. And I never knew people had soooo many parties, with themes, no less! Keep up the good work, and I hope the City Paper knows you have a loyal audience :-)
I never have seen the show, and I probably never will. I just enjoy a good acrobatic writer.
I cannot thank you enough for writing this column. It means I don't have to waste my time actually watching the show, unless I happen to be extremely bored and pick it up On Demand, but frankly there are better shows and better things to do than to be caught up in that drama. I can't wait for next week's recap...keep up the great work, you're are truly entertaining.
You crack me up! I love reading your column more than watching the show!
" These two weren’t born so much as they were torn from the thigh of David Lee Roth." i hope you dad comes around to your talent for writing. i sure appreciate it.
I live for Stef's reviews. . .
Kathryn has a NANNY-us mothers that did ALL our own work and raising kids, having a JOB and PAYING a reliable babysitter for a night out if family couldn't sit should be VERY proud of our accomplishments. I for one am!!
Kathryn has a NANNY for gosh sakes-many women raise 2 children without the "conveniences" of perks that we all have to work for.
whoa! Thanks C Paper for telling it as is. Ouch! sawy T Rav..
